Good things are worth repeating right? A favorite book or amazing movie will get read or watched over and over. One of our favorite events of the year is coming up soon and we cannot wait! The 2016 Festival on the Green will be taking place July 10-16 and this year marks its 38th anniversary. Since the beginning this festival has been a community favorite and it just gets better each year.
This festival is serious business folks—it has been named a “Top Ten Summer Event” 8 times by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce and Vermont Life has named it “the best series of free performances in Vermont” and Vermont’s “Favorite Festival.” Enjoy the Brown Bag Specials from 12-1 every day–storytelling, dance, music, and puppetry performances designed for families. Evening performances will be from 7-10 Monday through Friday and then Sunday from 7-9. On Saturday evening from 7-9 is the popular Street Dance that will feature big-band selections by the acclaimed Vermont Jazz Ensemble. Check out the complete schedule and list of performers here. The festival will be held on the Village Green and will take place rain or shine. Delicious food vendors will be on hand during the evening performances as well.
Grab a blanket, grab some friends, and get ready for a summer party that truly brings to life the essence of New England in summer. When it comes to accommodations we have you covered! Our bed and breakfast is a hop, skip and a jump from where all of the action will be taking place. You can enjoy all of the fun to your heart’s content and then come “home” to an elegant, relaxing suite where you can kick back and enjoy some down time. Book your favorite room online today before the festival crowds take your spot—we look forward to seeing you soon!
